Astrophysical S factor for C-13(p,gamma)N-14 and asymptotic normalization coefficients
MetadataShow full item record
We reanalyze the C-13(p,gamma)N-14 radiative capture reaction within the R-matrix approach. The low-energy astrophysical S factor has important contributions from both resonant and onresonant captures. The normalization of the nonresonant component of the transition to a particular N-14 bound state is expressed in terms of the asymptotic normalization coefficient (ANC). In the analysis we use the experimental ANC's inferred from the C-13(N-14,C-13)N-14 and C-13(He-3,d)N-14 reactions. The fits of the calculated S factors to the experimental data are sensitive to the ANC values and are used to test the extracted ANC's. We find that for transitions to all the states in N-14, except the third excited state, the ANC's determined from the transfer reactions provide the best fit. The astrophysical factor we obtain, S(0)=7.7+/-1.1 keV b, is in excellent agreement with previous results.
